The terms understeer and oversteer are used to describe how sensitive a vehicle is to steering. If your vehicle turns more than you command it to, then you are oversteering. Likewise, if your vehicle does not turn as much as you want it to, then you are understeering. There are several things that can cause you to oversteer. This includes applying excessive throttle, trail braking and lifting off of the throttle while you are steering.

If your vehicle is oversteering, then your vehicle may start to spin. You may also notice that the back of your vehicle is too light. Understeering is usually linked to driver input. Your vehicle is more likely to understeer if the surfaces outside are wet. You may notice that your steering feels light. The vehicle may also vibrate when you are steering.
